​Dealing with the Tough Stuff - Discipline
PM Session - 1 to 4:30 PM
This Dealing with disciplinary problems is one of the toughest issues a company officer will face. We are programmed to be get along and function like family – so knowing how to correct bad behavior does not always come naturally. In this class we will discuss the meaning of discipline and how culture impacts our ability to discipline. We will discuss the difference between Property and Non-Property Right Discipline, as well as laws and rules affecting how we impart discipline; to include an employee’s constitutional right to due process. We will provide real-world examples and explain best practices when it comes to writing-up an employee and follow this with situational exercises.
